Upcoming Speaking Engagement
Catherine and I will be speaking at the 16th Annual Self Employment In The Arts conference coming up on Feb 26th & 27th at the Lisle Hilton. The conference is mainly for people just starting out in the creative arts. There will be musicians, painters, actors, writers, etc. Of course we’ll be focusing on photography and graphic design, but that’s only a part of it. We will also talk about what it’s like to run a business, have a plan in place, and work together as a team. Many people starting out a career in a creative area have the necessary skills to be a talented artist, but they fail when they attempt to make a living at it. We try our best to help others understand how to turn their passions into reality. The journey isn’t easy, and it means you will have to learn a few things about sales and marketing. But it’s so rewarding when you finally have a successful business and still enjoy what you do.
The SEA Conference is a great place to learn from your peers and network with people in other disciplines that might be experiencing some of the same challenges you are. If you are a student, recent graduate, or are just starting out a new business, please look into attending. We hope to see you there! Learn more about the Self Employment in the Arts Conference here:
